  Lions | Could show interest in Jason Babin     Wed Nov 28, 11:03 AM

The Detroit Lions could have some interest in free-agent DE Jason Babin (Eagles) but not through waivers. Any team that claims Babin will be responsible for the balance of his $5.575-million contract this year, about $1.8 million. The Lions don't have enough cap space to take on that deal without restructuring current contracts. However, DE Cliff Avril and DE Lawrence Jackson will be unrestricted free agents after the season, and DE Kyle Vanden Bosch just turned 34, so the Lions might be interested in Babin.

Footballguys view: Babin's not going to be on the street for very long. We'll see quite a few teams show interest in the veteran pass rusher.

Detroit Lions S Louis Delmas (knee), LB Douglas Hogue (illness), CB Chris Houston (knee), DL Lawrence Jackson (thigh) and RB Kevin Smith (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Footballguys view: Our early guess is that Smith won't play, and he himself admitted that he would have said he wouldn't play this week last after the Thanksgiving game vs. the Packers. Smith did say he was doing better, but expect Maurice Morris to get the call as the starter vs. the Saints.
